Well you certainly could use manual locking spring platforms if you wanted to..

What about a simple preload spacer to get the lock rings further up the shock body?? Could add whatever length that would make it reasonable to get the spanners on there easily.

I like the way you guys think... Unfortunately for this to go to production it will be made with Ohlins standard parts in a way Ohlins would approve of. If you want a custom built one-off style shock then sure I can tailor it to any spec you want as long as you are willing to pay for it.

Awwwwww....that nice bit of bling is hidden? I was putt-putting along the street in a crowded, touristy beach area the other day, and I saw a guy's eyeballs absolutely LOCK ON to that Ohlins adjuster.

Usually, the eyeballs lock on to the tips of the booming Jardines...

The new one with the shorter hose I am working on sits just behind the Sato Racing Ti hanger on the right side. Makes the hanger look like a small protector cage for it

LOL. It's not bling it's clutter. Not a fan

Also I don't think anyone looks at jardines with envy. They are pretty bargain bin don't you think?
